So what kind of team building activities are in vogue at the moment? Well, with Liverpool’s quickly growing business scene, corporate team building events are all the rage with places that mimic popular TV shows like Dragon’s Den, The Apprentice and Masterchef. The list includes more hands-on activities that take your team out of their element, such as simulating survival situations in a hostile environment – Bear Grylls, anyone?
You’ll also find the ever popular options well represented, with escape rooms, team races, and interactive arts workshops easy to find and get involved with. Beyond this, you can also choose from a selection of bars, clubs, and restaurants that are happy to hire out their private function rooms for self-designed team building activities that need their own space. These venues provide the perfect backdrop that you can further customise for any kind of activity. What’s more, Liverpool offers a wide range of versatile workshop spaces to use, so if you’d like to organise a cooking class or something along these lines, we’ve got you covered.
At this point you might be thinking, where are all of these places located? If you’re interested in cooking and crafts related team building activities, a good place to start looking would be around Chinatown. Focus your search around Victoria and Harrington for the more casual corporate events, such as game shows and escape rooms. Many popular team building options require you to provide a location for the event organisers as they will come into your space to set up a scavenger hunt, game show, etc. Where should you go in this case? The area around Fleet Street and Hanover Street abounds in more open and customisable meeting spaces and halls. Last but not least, if you’d like something more central, have a closer look at team building venues in Albert Dock, Ropewalks and around the Baltic Triangle.

If you want to make sure that your team is getting along, it is crucial to spend time with them doing something enjoyable and creative outside of work. Making your team more socially cohesive will ensure that everyone is communicating effectively and feeling understood, which is crucial for high-performing teams. These occasions can enhance your team's creativity and boost its productivity in the long run. You can hold events that are designed to help your team members get better at a specific skill or group of competencies. Hosting team building exercises frequently will improve your team's problem-solving abilities, it will give them the chance to develop trust among one another, and will help everyone stay clear of misconceptions and possible disputes. The advantages are truly endless.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
